Rivalry Between Black And White Women?

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobopians. I’ve been reading a collection of history books called ‘Sex and Race’, volumes 1 through 3. Written and self published by J. A. Rogers (1942). Some of the passages don’t really surprise me but I’ve learned things that were never taught in history classes I ever had.  [So much for Black studies.]

I learned of a point of view from a blog post that a modern-day Black woman’s worth is only $5 (U.S.). Seriously? During the era of slavery a white woman couldn’t fetch more than $5. But hey…that was when white’s were sold as slaves too. Yep, that’s right!

Are today’s white women envious of Black women? Here’s an excerpt from page 214 from ‘Sex and Race’, vol. 2 :

“There is a soft, winning, captivating way about some of these colored girls that makes them perfectly irresistible. I don’t wonder at the envy, rage, and jealousy of our white women, they can’t help being conscious of their inferiority in this respect.”

Did you know that this kind of behavior led to broken marriages and divorce during the slave era?  Yes…white women left their husbands because the white men couldn’t keep their hands off the Black female slaves.  Ironic isn’t it?

It kind of makes you wonder about the so-called War on Women these days.

What American Dream?

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobopians! You have dreams of success right? You could become President of the country or president of a company. In a land of “color prejudice”*, that might not ever happen. So, the question for today, as was in 1965, is “Has the American Dream been achieved at the expense of the American Negro? Of course today we don’t use the term “negro” anymore.

The video below is from a February 18, 1965 debate at Cambridge University between conservative William F. Buckley Jr. and author James Baldwin.

*I am no longer going to use the term “racism” anymore if I can help it. I will use the proper phrase ‘color prejudice’. There is no such thing as RACE. But there is color prejudice!

From Newark To Ferguson

2 Comments

Hello zobopians! History always seem to have a way of repeating itself. In 1967 Newark a young kid, Joe Bass Jr., was gunned down in the streets during the riots there. Fast forward to 2014 Ferguson, Missouri and another young kid gets gunned down in the street. No less by cops in both situations! We never seem to learn from our own or anyone’s mistakes. We citizens of Black America keep crossing the same rivers of blood. Our own blood no less.

Here are two pictures from LIFE magazine, 1967, to ponder the ‘deja vu’ of our existence in America.

Not a Tea Party, a Confederate Party

zobop republic:

My thoughts on how the two major political parties switched. Blame President Richard Nixon when he sold out to Southerner Strom Thurmond. And Nixon kicked out and excluded the Black Republicans circa 1968.

Originally posted on The Weekly Sift:

Tea Partiers say you don’t understand them because you don’t understand American history. That’s probably true, but not in the way they want you to think.


Late in 2012, I came out of the Lincoln movie with two historical mysteries to solve:

  • How did the two parties switch places regarding the South, white supremacy, and civil rights? In Lincoln’s day, a radical Republican was an abolitionist, and when blacks did get the vote, they almost unanimously voted Republican. Today, the archetypal Republican is a Southern white, and blacks are almost all Democrats. How did American politics get from there to here?
  • One of the movie’s themes was how heavily the war’s continuing carnage weighed on Lincoln. (It particularly came through during Grant’s guided tour of the Richmond battlefield.) Could any cause, however lofty, justify this incredible slaughter? And yet, I realized, Lincoln was winning. What must the Confederate leaders…

A Nation Of Panhandlers

4 Comments

Hello fellow zobopians. I’ve been gathering my thoughts on this subject: panhandlers. Are we becoming a Nation of Panhandlers? Is the American economy that bad? I would think so when I walk/travel through my community in Chicago. It seems like everyone, (male and female; young and old), is constantly asking me for spare change. Walking down a lonely street or whatever, in some instance I’m the only one in sight, I’ll pass another pedestrian and I get asked if I have money to give to him. It just seems so casual-like. It makes me feel uneasy.

Most panhandlers are on busy street corners or standing/sitting in front of businesses to increase their chances of getting some hand-out. I encounter too many casual pedestrians just walking down the street, like me, asking for money in a way that comes off as to uncomfortable for me. Recently I was walking home and came across a store-front residence, where people live, and there was a guy standing in front of what I assume was a stair landing and he just ask me for spare change. In front of his home! Seriously, is this crappy economy this bad when citizens are panhandling in front of their home?

Now, lets pause. I don’t mind giving anybody my spare change to someone. It’s no big deal unless I really need the money for myself. (I’m not rich.)

I’m just beginning to sense a bad habit forming among people that comes off like a “third world” type of behavior. This is the USA for crying out loud! I’m not oblivious that America is in a Funk Economic Depression! If this country doesn’t get its economic affairs in order, this panhandling is going to become a bad habit. People need jobs & money so they won’t have to panhandle to every Tom, Dick & Harry.

I guess this ends my writers block. Until next time…

Writers Block Sucks

Hey zobopians! Man, I’ve got a case of writers block like you wouldn’t believe! But I’ll get over it sooner or later. Meanwhile, I’ll just keep internet searching for more Emma Watson pictures. I know what your thinking, don’t ask. ;)

Lies, Lies, Lies! They’re Gonna Get You!

Hi there fellow zobopians!  The debate about the Minimum Wage is full of lies.

Lie #1) Minimum wage pulls workers out of poverty. Most employees are getting few, if any, company-sponsored benefits like healthcare or paid time off  Most workers are getting government benefits.

Lie #2) Minimum wage will kill jobs.  Most profits low-wage labor go toward the salaries and bonuses of corporate executives.

Lie #3) Increasing minimum wage will impact small businesses.  If or when wages go up, small businesses won’t feel the impact now, but it could change in the far future.

Lie #4) Most minimum wage workers are teenagers.  Most workers are working women over the age of 20, usually the head of her family.
